1959 MG A Roadster 03294 (Not Warranted) £36,500.00 + buyers premium

Description:

A simply stunning  restored  1960 MGA Roadster  in excellent  condition with a fully documented/ photographed  history. Presented in fabulous  and outstanding condition,  we believe this to be   an unrepeatable opportunity especially given today’s restoration costs.

Restoration costs are receipted at £30,776 on 1st October 2000,   plus additional  interior expenditure  at  £5000. Considerable receipted expenditure since then with a current total receipted costs well in excess of £40,000. The restoration at today’s values ( if possible) would surely cost considerably more. The restoration is fully documented/ receipted  and includes many colour photographs

1st  Owner   Mr N Morris,   13th January 1960  Barnes London

2nd Owner   Mr T Mobley   15th July 2010 Wimborne  Dorset

This  beautiful car was enjoyed by the first owner  Mr Morris in Barnes , SW London until he commenced restoration thoughts/ discussions in January 1986, with work commencing in November 1994. The Restorer selected was the very reputable West Hoathly Garage, Sussex  – Rolls Royce and Bentley specialists. The total  (“nut and bolt” ) restoration was completed October 2000 and the car was placed in storage until 2010.The third owner ( Mr Hendy) added the chrome wire wheels at £1853 plus 5 tyres. (March 2014). A much regretted genuine sale following recent   lack of use due  to health and other issues.

 

Auctioneers Notes: For once I have nothing to add – this car is truly outstanding.
